Yeah it was. The whole cul de sac street was like a huge pond and it almost, just almost coming up to my house, and down to the driveway (where the ditch is) was filled with flood waters. My house is on a elevated top, but its also next to a revene which drains the water pretty quickly though IIRC. But yeah, that was wild, the storm stalled and went back as a tropical storm, and made another landfall in Louisiana.

So the storm made history, because one it made two landfalls, a category 4 landfall in Texas, and a tropical storm landfall in Louisiana. Two, lots of rainfall, and we're getting tornadoes like crazy and luckly our power stayed on during the storm.

Plus the eye wall hit Corpus Christi, but in Houston we're getting all of the bad stuff.

@lightinglover8902, those were probably embedded weak spin up tornadoes, or maybe funnel clouds. Embedded supercell thunderstorms within hurricanes
isn't impossible, but those supercell storms in a hurricane won't be as intense as a typical supercell thunderstorm lol
This is why you don't hear much about F4/F5 tornadoes within hurricanes, or hail storms. It's good though because I'm pretty
sure that if an F5 tornado took place inside of a category 5 hurricane, there would be far, far more fatalities.

Yeah, it could've been worse. There was one of those brief spin-up tornadoes near me during the storm, as the warning was issued it ALMOST about to come down to the ground, but it quickly went back up and dissipated.

Ohh lol that's a funnel cloud if it didn't touch the ground... spinning from a Mesocyclone in a weak supercell storm
within the outer bands of the hurricane

Yeah, it was bad. My weather radios were going off like crazy during the storm.

Man, what I wish I could do -- I wish I could see the base cloud of a hurricane before it arrives. I've
always wondered what it looks like... does it look like a shelf cloud? Does it look like a traditional
thunderstorm base cloud? I don't know lol

Are you talking about that huge severe thunderstorm that I took a pic from last year in summer? Or are you talking about the hurricane?

Same here. And also *inside* the eye.
Pictures/video is one thing, but ti see it in real life would be quite another.

Sometimes I watch weather videos on YouTube. Although, I'm hoping we get some thunderstorms around here soon, but lately the weather hasn't rained much. Or the rain we have gotten hasn't been heavy or with thunderstorm.

No, I don't have one. But I was thinking of getting on of the Acurite weather stations that has the lightning detector built in. Since my weather station had stopped working, and I hadn't gotten a new one yet.

I'd like to get a weather station (or even better build one using a Raspberry Pi or Audrino)
We got 4-5" of snow friday evening/night. Part of the same weather-system produced a small tornado out on the eastern planes of CO friday afternoon. By this afternoon nearly all that snow is gone.

I've also found this site: stormtrack.org/community interesting to look around at. Should be some good reading & info there.

Which one? So far I got two weather stations (one for accuracy of wind measurement), so far the LaCrosse station is holding up well. The Acurite ones looses signal from time to time.

I had an Acurite 3 in 1 with indoor/outdoor humidity, temp and wind speed. But the outside unit had a bunch of carpenter ants build a nest in it, even though it wasn't near a nest. So it stopped working, and I haven't replaced it yet. We still use the inside display because it still gives the time, date, and inside temp/humidity, but nothing outside.

That I do not know .. going to have to try & research it. I don't want anything real expensive, but I also want something that's reliable/durable, not going to be demolished on the first hailstorm or 80-100mph windgust it sees, really needs to be able to take a beating .lol.
